Well I talked to a guy who did what I did. He used copper tubing in the adapter and in the bellhousing. Then used a drill the size of the bolts. This is mainly to center up the plate and the housing. Then he did the heli-arc on the aluminum adapter to fill the grooves and then grind the area flat. He used the 3/4" thick ones. Next he did the bit with installing the half of an indexing pin and the welding rod in the bell housing indexing holes. Then he bolted the adapter to the bellhousing with nuts and bolts to imprint the adapter plate. The took it apart and started small and worked up in size on a drill press for the indexing pin holes. He said you may or may not need the crank adapter depending on which transmission you use, auto or manual. He also said that you may or may not have to grind / trim on the starter mount area depending on the flywheel location. Like I said before, it has been 10 to 15 years since I have done one. Just think about what you are doing and feel your way through it. I use the flywheels that I can use modern starters. This way, I can run down to the local yard or auto parts store, if it goes out. I actually have a bunch of adapters in the barn. I may even have one made up out there some place. Hope this helps.

It has been a while, like years. The newer small block Mopars are exactly the same bolt pattern as the old hemis. The difference is the indexing pin locations. If I can remember I installed copper wire crimp sleeves in the adapter plate. I used the 3/4 inch thick one. Then drilled the holes perfectly for the bolts to fit without wobbling. next I took a later bellhousing and did the same. I removed the bellhousing 1/2" indexing pins. I have several extras. I cut one in half so it would be flush with the hole opening. Then drilled an 1/8" hole centered in it. Then cut an 1/8" welding rod just long enough to stick out of the indexing pin maybe 1/8 to 3/16 of an inch and ground the end to a point.. Then stuck the pin in the indexing pin in the bellhousing. I had figured where the pin would hit the adapter and had fill welded the groove closed. Now I bolted the bellhousing though the adapter plate to engine block. This causes the pointy welding rods to indent the adapter plate. Then you use a small drill to make a pilot hole and the work up in size to the 1/2" hole. Then you can remove all the copper sleeves from the bolt holes and install full length indexing pins in the bellhousing. Next I buy a crank shaft adapter from Hot Heads with the proper size bushing to fit my transmission input shaft. I always use the 172 tooth flywheel, so any modern Mopar starter works. You can always change a 146 to 172 tooth. You can work on the starter mounting. Either shim or grind some off to get it to clear and also pull the gear into the flywheel. Like I say, it has been years. Anyway that is how I made my adapters. You may try it with out the HH adapter. The main idea it to shim the bolt holes to center everything. I have a bunch of adapters in the barn. Maybe I'll make a few on of these days.

How do you rework the stock adapter plate ?

What exactly do you need? I use the regular bellhousing and rework the old factory adapter plate. Then use a Hotheads flywheel adapter. You have to make new holes for your indexing pins. If this is what your asking, I can tell you. If not, maybe I can still help, if I understand what information that you need
